Bayern's Ribery stuck on bench

BY foxsports • January 28, 2010

Bayern Munich's coach says star winger Franck Ribery still isn't ready for a full game and will not start Saturday in the Bundesliga game against promoted Mainz.

Louis van Gaal says Ribery could come off the bench, as he did last week in the 3-2 win at Werder Bremen. Bayern is chasing first place and is two points behind Bayer Leverkusen.

Van Gaal says he sees no reason to change a winning lineup. Bayern has won its last six Bundesliga games.
